HCPA Sustainability & Product Stewardship Council

Third-party certifications enable industrial, commercial, and consumer product users to verify the sustainability attributes of products quickly and easily. During this session, three leading certification organizations—Green Seal, EPA Safer Choice and UL—will discuss trends in market preference for more sustainable products and give technical updates on their current activities and potential program expansions. The presentations will be followed by roundtable discussions with the speakers in three breakout rooms (one for each certification organization).
